Re: September Challenge - Tricky Tractors - COMMENTS

How about extending the deadline a day or two so Rayman can finish?

Re: Finis' Experiments and Scribbles

Cant reproduce why you need so many polygons??!!...I doubt your scene needs so many! My curiosity and thoughts are not limited to the immediate things around me here and now. I like to know things just to know them. I'll guess the Christmas project will have less than one million polys. I learned t...

Re: Blender 2.8 add mesh question

I reset to factory default settings and now the panel works ... so far. So there is some preference or setting that breaks it. Maybe I'll stumble onto which setting that is as I set things back the way I like. Thanks everyone for the suggestions! Edit: Restore the Preferences defaults. Edit->Prefere...

Looks like it could be a theming issue? Try change things even if it looks greyed out.

Re: Blender 2.8 add mesh question

If you do anything, even just click after creating something the panel will disappear. It's only good right after the creation process. True but that's not the problem here. The problem is that the panel is not good right after the creation process. It is inactive. Grayed out. The fields on it can'...

Re: Finis' Experiments and Scribbles

That's not this problem Rayman but it happens! I've had some funny "transporter accidents". The maker of Auto-Rig Pro answered my questions. It was me misunderstanding how ARP works and lack of knowledge of Blender's NLA. I tested render limits on my system. I found that 5 million polygons takes 30 ...

Christmas Card 2019

This thread is for my animated Christmas card project. The goal is a short film not a CG object representing a paper Christmas card. Some parts of the videos will be customized for each recipient. I hope I'm not overly ambitious and can finish this before Christmas. The theme is toys come to life. A...

Re: Short Term Plans

An old friend was in town last weekend. We went to El Paso looking for large ceramic cowboy boots which he would trade to someone in Kansas for furniture made from whisky barrels. Doesn't that sound like a wierd movie that should star Woody Harrelson? @Bitrkar: I might get a can with 600+ rounds of ...
